Is it a self-care Sunday for you, too?

I love taking a day to pay attention to my needs and indulge in some healthy rituals.

Here I have a super simple face mask that is good for you and is not so harmful for the planet nor your wallet.

Three ingredients are all you need. Well, four if you include the water that is diluting the vinegar.

  • Clay of choice (French green, kaolin, bentonite, etcetera)
  • Spirulina
  • Diluted apple cider vinegar

My recipe is 1:1 of clay and spirulina, then an equal amount of liquid. Water works, but I have found vinegar to mix more thoroughly for some reason.

Yes, spirulina smells like the sea, and you will look like a monster for a few minutes. I love scaring my husband when I wear this mask.

Wash off with a warm washcloth after 5 – 10 minutes. You will feel the blood in your face for sure and your skin might turn reddish. I usually spray some rose water immediately after, then moisturize!

What’s your favorite self-care ritual?

Peace and love,

Kristan
